Aloha Fiddlerman,

I saw you referenced a Mac in another thread.  Have you tried using Photo Booth and the built-in mic for a video?  I would be interested in your results, or anyone else's results using that same setup.  I don't have any Windows-based PCs in my house (been there before, but switched in 2006 and am not looking back :D), but would like to see if any other Mac person has used the built-in software and hardware.

I've never recorded myself using the built in cam but I have given plenty of lessons with it.
I'm sure it would work fine but you will be limited as far as the quality is concerned. What will you use the video for?
You can also just use QuickTime instead of PhotoBooth. More suitable for recordings I believe.
